  • Flag any irregularities that require follow-up action or research
  • Communicate with the appropriate property owners, legal counsel, and real estate professionals to verify transaction details

"Since I started my business back in 1995, I've relied on McDonald Land Services and their exceptional legal partners to handle the land titles for every property I own, lease, or work on.  The process requires a level of detail and organization that I simply don't have, so it's a tremendous relief to know that, with one call, I can rest assured knowing that my property titles are clear."
